From Missoula, Montana, USA:

With all of the hype about cow's milk being linked to Type 1 diabetes, should pregnant women be concerned about their milk intake during pregnancy? Has this been shown to put their unborn baby at higher risk for developing Type 1 diabetes?


Pregnant women need to increase their calcium intake for skeletal growth of the baby. Milk is an excellent source. This should not put the baby at increased risk.
